We have a bountiful zucchini crop in our garden year. This is a great way to use zucchini and the bread freezes well for later in the year. My husband has taken to calling this "magic" bread with the kids since it's a great way to sneak in some vegetables too.

You can also use this recipe to make muffins, just check them for doneness a bit earlier.


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • Ad

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2-3 zucchini (2 cups grated)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon (or more)
  • 1/2 Tbsp. cloves (optional)
  • 1/2 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)


Grate zucchini to equal 2 cups, well drained. A food processor is invaluable for grating the zucchini.

Mix together eggs, oil, sugar, zucchini, and vanilla; set aside


Mix together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves in a separate bowl.

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Stir in raisins and nuts if desired. Pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans.


Bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 45-50 minutes or until the center springs back when touched.

Servings: 2 loafs

This won me first prize at a county fair some years ago. It's an easy way to get a green veggie into youngsters. Zucchini alone doesn't really appeal to me, but with this recipe if you don't tell, they won't know!




Greased 2 8x4x2 inch loaf pans (or the equivalent which will hold 4 cups batter).

Combine beaten eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla, and pineapple in a mixing bowl. Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and add the above. Blend well, then stir in the grated zucchini. Stir well and divide between the two greased loaf pans.

Bake at 325 degrees F for 50 minutes. Test with a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, move to wire racks to cool for 5 minutes, then turn out onto the wire rack to cool completely.


Note: These freeze well up to 3 months. I also make and freeze individual slices.

If my recipe for zucchini bread calls for 3 cups of zucchini how much frozen zucchini should I use?


November 17, 20150 found this helpful

3 cups? Actually depends upon how the zucchini is supposed to be prepared and then measured in the recipe. You can cut or chop the frozen zucchini (thawed?) to approximate the amount stated in the recipe.
